The iPad 3

Gruber writes about the AP's suggestion that the iPad 3's specs indicate a “modest upgrade:”

I suspect this is a prelude to much of tomorrow's post-event coverage, echoing the initial tech press reaction to the iPhone 4S. But if a faster processor, more RAM, a double-the-resolution retina display, a better camera, and maybe even LTE networking make for a “modest” update, then what would it take for the iPad 3 to be deemed an immodest update? A fusion energy source? Teleportation? A camera that sees into the future?

I’m going to guess “immodest” would be anything currently not available on any other tablet, along with all the other things that are, but not already on the iPad. :cool:

Re: The iPad 3

The curious thing is that the “Retina display” qualifies on that point. Actually, in hindsight so does the LTE arrangement. Not that the iPad is the first to have LTE, but it is first to combine LTE with a sophisticated enough battery to get decent life out of an LTE tablet.
